The 2.35 PM ferry left at 4.15 PM with frustrated passengers standing in a non-aircondioned Hall. No proper communication from crew made the wait more anxious. Bintan ferry terminal must provide sufficient waiting area and crew need to provide proper communication

A well organised and safe operator and I would have no problem using them again in future. There are two classes, Economy and Emerald (VIP) class. We went economy and it was pleasant and not really that crowded. There is a 'no food or drink'...More

What an amazing little island this is. It’s raw and unspoilt. Ferry from Singapore was great! Said it would take up to an hour and 45 and it was way quicker. It was comfortable and had some complimentary drinks. I recommend the ferry service.

We paid more for emerald class so we would get our bags out quick. However we saw well over 100 goldclub bags out first regardless of the class of travel before any luggage came through at all. Not only an insane wait of 30 minutes...More

Great service, we booked emerald class tickets which give you a quicker boarding/disembarking process and includes refreshments before and during the journey.

I've used the ferry service over 20 times and it always does exactly what you would expect. Just like the ferry to Macau or Maldives from the mainland its about the getting to the destination rather than the journey. Food and drink is perfect for...More

The ferry ride is comfortable. But our transport between Singapore and Bintan was delayed both ways - 30 minutes on the way out and over an hour on the way back. They did offer free soft drinks on the latter to apologise. The ferry terminals...More

It's not local terminal, once you reach there only resort person will pick you up to their resort. There's nothing out there you can see. Price of any goods in the shops is similar with Singapore.
